Use the following procedure to migrate phones.

The Migrate Phones—SCCP to SIP window displays.

Note Migrating a phone that is running SCCP to SIP does not require a manual reset because the migration itself handles the reset of phones.

Device Name


Directory Number

Calling Search Space

Device Pool

Device Type

Device Protocol


IP Address

Step 7 Click Next.

Step 8 From the drop-down list box, choose the phone template.

Note SCCP to SIP migration will pick up only SIP specific default values from this template during migration. It will not pick any other value from the template.

Step 9 In the Job Information area, enter the Job description.

Step 10 To migrate phone records immediately, click the Run Immediately radio button. Click Run Later to migrate at a later time.
